Field Trip Options

Science, History, Inspiration.

Aviation embodies STEM. From the science of George Cayley in 1799 describing the forces needed for flight, using that knowledge to engineer a heavier-than-air flying machine, to creating the technology necessary for travel to space, aviation inspires generations, and generations make history.  The Lone Star Flight Museum intertwines history and science to inspire the next generation to fly higher. Our self-guided tours start with a brief introduction from a member of our Education Team who will prepare you for takeoff, then students have the freedom to explore the Museum with their chaperone. If requested, docent-led tours are available at no additional charge and include exhibit highlights, aviation facts and interesting stories about our aircraft.
